NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Before he passed away last month, George Jones had scheduled a star-packed final concert for November. It turns out the show will go on.

Jones' widow, Nancy, said Tuesday that Garth Brooks, Kid Rock and several more performers have agreed to keep the Nov. 22 date and appear in tribute to Jones at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The show was previously sold out.

Jones passed away April 26 at a Nashville hospital at 81. Thousands attended a memorial last week in Nashville to celebrate a defining male voice of country music.

Nancy Jones also said Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, The Oak Ridge Boys, Montgomery Gentry and Travis Tritt have signed on. Lineup updates will appear on Jones' website.
